- Ben Dryfuss, EDIBLZ co-founder: “Marijuana Moment has always been a great source for consistent, valuable news on the marijuana industry. Now as we start our first Illinois operations and are considering expansion into other states, we don’t have time to monitor every state’s website. The bill tracker allows us to see what’s going on in each state we are watching, in one place. It’s worth it just to save the time navigating Illinois’s website.”
